Re­minder about overnight park­ing

The Daily Press (Timmins) - - NEWS -

One of the re­al­i­ties of this time of year is that it won’t be long be­fore the snow flies and the roads in Tim­mins are snow cov­ered for the most part.

The other re­al­ity is that it means city mo­torists are be­ing ad­vised not to park on city streets overnight be­tween the hours of 11:30 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. from Nov. 1 through to April 30.

A news re­lease from city hall said mo­torists could be sub­ject to a $50 fine along with pos­si­ble tow­ing charges, un­less you are in an area ex­empt from the win­ter park­ing ban, in which case, signs would be posted stat­ing such.

In ad­di­tion, Tim­mins pub­lic works still car­ries out snow re­moval dur­ing day­light hours and when that is the case, red and yel­low signs will be posted on the streets where snow re­moval is un­der­way. As with overnight park­ing, ve­hi­cles will be tagged with a $50 ticket and could be towed away at the owner’s ex­pense.

City hall is also ad­vis­ing ve­hi­cle own­ers not to ex­pect a knock at the door to ad­vise of any win­ter road main­te­nance. The posted signs will be con­sid­ered suf­fi­cient no­tice. Res­i­dents are ad­vised to watch for the red and yel­low signs through­out the win­ter.
